Best Dracula's Dash Ever!

The 2015 fundraiser, "Dracula’s Dash for Hope," was a huge success. The race took place at a new venue this year and consisted of a 10k, 5k, and Kid’s ½ mile Run. The October weather was perfect and we doubled our numbers from last year. Many of the runners were in costume and there were several activities for the children. We express our appreciation to all who supported Bridge of Love in this annual fundraiser, and we hope to see more of you there next year!

Thank You Fairhope, Alabama!

We want to extend our deep appreciation for all involved in the recent Art Auction held in Fairhope, Alabama for Bridge of Love. It was a beautiful event and the proceeds will be a blessing to the Romanian children. We appreciate PJ and MaryBeth Howard, their committee, the talented artists, and those who bought the beautiful pieces of art!

ThankYou res

Great News!

The office in Bârlad is in the process of being remodeled to make a bigger gathering area where the foster children can gather for games, activities, and classes. It will be nice to have a safe place off the streets where the children can socialize!

Summer Camp was Great!

Our recent summer camp for the Bridge of Love foster children was held in July. The ten new children who have recently been added to our program were in attendance. Our theme was, "Lend a Helping Hand," and the children learned the importance of reaching out to others to make a difference. The children loved the team building workshops and activities, and the time together. The foster mothers also came for parenting classes, activities, and social time. We extend a special thanks to all our volunteers for their love and commitment towards the children.

Village Visits

Bridge of Love has expanded their efforts to not only help the abandoned and orphaned children, but to assist poor village families with the needs of their children. The summer volunteers made a trip into several villages this summer to deliver needed clothing and diapers to those in need. It was a joy to be able to help strengthen families who are doing their best to care for their children.
